QUESTION: How soon before Jesus comes again?

 

ANSWER:  I wish I knew the answer to that question…!  What we do know is that Jesus is going to come again.  John 16:22 says, “And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.”

 

There is no doubt that Jesus is going to come again.  And when He sees us and we see Him, it will be a time of rejoicing the likes of which man has never seen before.  What a glorious day that will be!

 

But the promise of Jesus’ return is actually being fulfilled in another sense each and every day.  Jesus said in our text verse, “but I will see you again.”  Again and again God uses the word again as He deals with man.  Every time we confess our sin He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness – again.  When our faith in His promises – even the promise of eternal life – grows a little dim, He comes once again and repeats once more, “peace be unto you.”  And it does.

 

Every past mercy is more reason to believe and anticipate future mercies.  If Jesus was with us before, He’ll be with us again.  If Jesus has ever been kind to you before, He’ll be kind to you again.  Previous ‘niceties’ from God are not to be considered as “in the past and dead and buried,” but rather as seed sown, which will grow, push up out of the dirt of life and bless us once again! 

 

Stop looking at circumstances and start looking in the Book.  Do you see Him?  You’ll see Him again, too.  While our own government may sell all that America has ever stood for out, God will keep His promises – you can stand on them.  The longer we wait the closer His return.  His feet are more sure than those of a mountain goat – they will bring Him to us. 

 

So rejoice Christian because He has said, “I will see you again!”
